Harris: When I was young and called to the Bar

Actual Lyrics

When I, good friends, was call’d to the bar
I’d an appetite fresh and hearty
But I was, as many young barristers are
An impecunious party
I’d a swallow-tail coat of a beautiful blue
And a brief which I bought of a booby
A couple of shirts, and a collar or two
And a ring that looked like a ruby

Lyrics to Admiral’s song (Joseph Porter’s song) from HMS Pinafore, Gilbert and Sullivan

Harris: When I was young I served a term
As office boy to an Attorney’s firm.
I swept the windows and I swept the door,…

Actual Lyrics

Begins with
I am the Monarch of the sea:(lyrics on screen)

Actual Lyrics:

When I was a lad I served a term (lyrics on screen)
As office boy to an Attorney’s firm.
I cleaned the windows and I swept the floor (no lyrics)
And I polished up the handle of the big front door.
I polished up that handle so carefullee
That now I am the Ruler of the Queen’s Navee!

Better production but no lyrics
I am the Monarch of the sea…:

When I was a lad…:
I cleaned the windows…:

“When I was young, I served a term…” shows up as a parody in Recollections of a Country Lawyer

HELLO!

I’m Heather Ordover

Hi there and welcome!
I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do.
CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure you'll find another that is.
Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
